Flora and Fauna

French Island is renowned for its large population of disease free koalas. French Island also abounds in many other species of wildlife, such as echidnas, lizards and snakes (these usually stay out your way), frogs, potoroos and other small marsupials. 

As you travel along the roads you often see magnificent birds of prey swooping and hovering over the landscape. Along the coast wading birds can be seen as they search the shore for snacks. Throughout the bushland areas birds large and small, colourful and melodious can be seen flitting from tree to tree.
